'Vampire' burns V into teen's face
Police allege he 'branded' the girl with eating utensils
Vampire want-to-be Evan Francis Brown celebrated the Halloween season by using a fork or spoon to burn the letter "V" into the forehead of a 17-year-old, police said.
The 20-year-old Albertville, Alabama, man, is known as "Vamp".
He fled after the victim sought treatment - but was caught when he showed up for court on unrelated charges.
This is according to Sergeant Wayne Keener of the police department in Gadsden, where the incident allegedly occurred.
"We went to the residence where he had lived. It was filled with Satanic symbols on the wall. It was some kind of cult," said Keener.
Also found was a book on witchcraft stolen from the local library, police said.
The police department has condemned the house.
The victim claims he was tricked by Brown, who invited him to play a game, Detective Mike Hooks reportedly told the Gadsden Times.
The teen was tied up, beaten, branded with the "V" and burned with cigarettes, according to Hooks.
Brown was charged with assault this week over the incident.
